Everyday stuff!

March 20th, 2015 (09:01 pm)

I decided I actually want to start blogging about some simple life stuff rather than only using this LJ to cross-post my EGL sales.

Now that I have an iPhone, it's a lot less hassle to take and upload pictures, and since it's fun to keep track of things, I decided I want to try blogging every day, even if it's just recording purchases or making mini-posts with a couple sentences and a photo.

Today I have a small "beauty" haul. My order from Too Faced's spring sale finally arrived today!
I normally use Clinique Almost Powder Makeup over my liquid foundation, but the Too Faced Amazing Face powder was on sale for $15 each and had great review,s so I decided to jump for the bargain and bought two! I also purchased four eye shadows, which were only $6 each!
  IMG_3996.JPG no title


I also picked up my favorite daily moisturizer from LUSH. I swear this stuff gets more expensive every time I buy it. It was nearly $47 after tax >:(
It smells wonderful though, and for years it hasn't made me break out and is one of the few foundations that absorbs well and provides a good base under my makeup.



Don't be fooled - that container is tiny!

Rosery Solennel JSK problem

March 17th, 2015 (08:18 pm)

===========================
EDIT:
I emailed Juliette et Justine about the issue and received a very polite response from Tomoko, who informed me that the Camee et Lapin JSK is actually meant to sit BELOW the natural waistline.
It just happens to sit AT the natural waistline on me because of my body length.


============================

A few months ago, I reserved the Rosery Solennel JSK and today it arrived. I was very excited for this dress because Rosery Solennel is my favorite Juliette et Justine print. However, much to my disappointment, the dress shape resembles a "babydoll dress" (empress waistline) which I was not expecting. The pictures of the model wearing the dress on the product webpage led me to believe it was cut similar to the Camee et Lapin JSK which I received at PMX in 2013 wiith a bodice that ends at my true waistine.

IMG_3892


The measurement from the waistline to the neckline on the Rosery Solennel JSK is 21 centimeters.
Compare this to the measureent from the waistline to the neckline on the Camee et Lapin JSK, which is 28 centimeters. The difference is a full 7 centimeters!
When purchasing this dress during the reserve period, I requested each shoulder strap be lengthened by 2 centimeters (Juliette et Justine offers 1 free alteration when you reserve products through their website). I am not sure if this confused the seamstress and is the reason why the dress has the issue with the bodice, but it is strange that the bodice is so short while the straps are a natural length.... On the far right is the image of the dress back, where there is a very flattering V-shape. The length from the waistline to the base of the V is 17 centimenters.
My friend suggested I turn the dress around backwards and wear it with a V-neckline ... it actually looked really good worn that way (retro!) but I didn't take a photo LOL
IMG_3899 RS_front RS_Vback

This wasn't what I was expecting, given the stock images and other image on the product page.
Both my Camee et Lapin JSK (no alterations) and new Rosery Solennel JSK are a size 2.
For reference, I am 167 centimeters tall, so Japanese dresses tend to be too short for my torso in general haha

Anyway, spring is coming up, and I feel the Camee et Lapin JSK would be perfect to wear for Easter! Here are a few pictures of the JSK coordinated on my dressform.

Bust: 66-94+ cm bust
Waist: 61 - 73 cm waist
This is the LONG length JSK. The bodice has adjustable length, due to the straps, and the straps also provide more leeway for larger bust size.
Length: 69 cm skirt length, as measured by me. The official full length dress measurement is 108 cm official measurement, but this may vary depending on how far you tie the straps.
Material: Thick black cotton with white print.
Features: Pleated print skirt, back shirring, detachable waist ties (very sturdy: two buttons per waist tie secure it on either side of the dress), halter neck straps that, if you'd like, you could attach buttons to because there are button holes at the back of the dress and wear it as a regularly strapped dress, pinched fabric at bust creates a pretty sweetheart neckline.
Year released: 2008
History: I am the second owner of the dress and bought it NWT from someone who never wore it
RFS: I already have the skirt and wear that one more often!

Size: LARGE

Info: Detachable brown bow, antique goldtone rose buttons, lots of rose lace, detachable waist ties.
History: Bought new directly from Innocent World. I have other Innocent World blouses in their "milk tea" colorway because it is my favorite, but this one is a bit more peachy-toned than the others and clashes with my skin tone.

Moi-meme-Moitie Cathedral Ruins middle-length SKIRT  ivory x black
aIMG_1227 printIMG_1226 ruins_coord
$230 free US shipping!
Waist: official measurement is 64.5, but it seems to fit me like my JetJ size 2 skirts, which are 69 cm.
Ideally someone with a 68 cm waist or smaller should wear this.
Length: 66 cm
Material: ivory georgette and black print
Features: fully lined, front and back pleats, and of course a very, very detailed print similar, quite similar to Silent Moon
Year released: 2012
History: I am the skirt's first owner and bought it directly new from cdjapan!
RFS: I plan to buy the black x blue OP instead



Juliette et Justine Antique Dentelle Robe (BLACK ONEPIECE)
antique-dentelleIMG_1569IMG_1570 IMG_1582IMG_1571 IMG_1572
$210 Free shipping anywhere!
Bust: 96-100 (possiby more. My dress form only goes to 100)
Waist: (can go very small) 65? to 90
Length: 98 cm
Material: soft cotton chiffon
Year released: 2010, possibly 2011
Features: Full shirring! Even the sleeves have shirring so are comfortable around the arms while still providing that perfect juliette-sleeve poof.  There is beautiful rose lace on the sleeve cuffs, and the sleeves of this dress are also quite long so it is fantastic for those of us tall lolitas who have a hard time finding blouses with long sleeves (I'm looking at you, Innocent World blouses!)
This dress can be worn as an underdress, like a blouse under a JSK, or can be worn on its own with a bustier/corset or belt to show off the many tiers of large rose lace on the skirt
History: I bought this dress NWOT last year and have worn it once and carefully hand-washed it. It is in near-perfect condition!
RFS: I bought this dress because it looked so good with my Grazia Crown JSK, but since I sold that dress, I haven't been using this as much, and believe another owner will get more use out of this OP than I will

Length: 91
Material: black polyester with (cotton?) cross lace
Features: Fully lined inside, Elastic band at back, zipper in middle of back, elastic around sleeves, rose-shaped antique goldtone buttons on the front, frills on the front, tulle and beautiful rose cross lace at the hem of the skirt, detailed Chandelier print on 6 panels making the skirt (3 on the front, 3 at the back), removeable satin frill ribbon to tie around underbust

$270 FREE U.S. SHIPPING
Bust: 84 - 100+ (the shirring on this dress is more accommodating than any other AATP dress I've owned)
Waist: 70 - 80+ (this can accommodate nearly any waist size due to the shirring reason stated above, plus its drop-waist design allows for more room)
Length: 105 cm
Year released: 2013
Material: thick black cotton sateen (this dress is very heavy and perfect for winter!)
Features: GIANT circle skirt with lots of poof potential, high quality heavy cotton sateen and lace on the tiered pintucked skirt and lace on the neckline. Removable front bib with pintucks, detachable waist ties, and long waist tie you can remove or tie through the belt loops. Shirring in the back can stretch very far, and there is boning in the front for a nice shape.
History: I am the first owner of this dress and bought it new from the BtSSB/AATP online shop because it so closely resembles Mary Magdalene's Elodie Doll JSK :)   It has never been worn outside because I don't have a giant cupcake petti co accomodate it.
RFS: Although I adore the length on this dress, I have so many other black dresses that I tend to wear. I have tried it on, but it is in fact new (I removed the tag). It has sat it in my closet for a year and it should go to a new home.


Alice and the Pirates Diana Chiffon JSK in BLACK

History: I am the second owner of this dress - received it dry-cleaned and have never worn it out, only tried on.
RFS: My favorite cut for a JSK is this, the A-line shape, so I have amassed quite a few and am now trying to cull down my collection!


Innocent World Octavia JSK in BLACK x BLACK
IW_Octavia_blackxblack IMG_1574 IMG_1575 IMG_1576 IMG_1580
$170 free U.S. Shipping!

Length: 93 (including trim length)
Material: smooth black cotton sateen dress with light poly chiffon trim and bust decoration.

Year released: 2011
History: I am its first owner, bought it in the IW Summer Sale in 2012 and never wore it. This dress is NWOT.
RFS: Again, I have way to many black dresses ;) This dress is beautiful in its simplicity and is perfect for classic lolita, but I find myself leaning less towards classic these days and more towards rufflier, princessier (that's not even a word, is it) gothic pieces instead!


Innocent World Alphabet Rose JSK in pink / short
IW_alphabet-rose-jsk_short_pink_colorizedIMG_1153smallerdetails
$140 free shipping anywhere!
Bust: 80 - 98~
Waist: 62 - 82
Length: 93 cm
Material: lightweight printed cotton, perfect for warmer weather
Features: Back shirring with pink ribbon, and can be worn as a halter or add buttons to wear as a regularly strapped JSK (like most recent IW JSKs, this dress has button holes in back for adjustable length straps), also features one of the prettiest most underrated IW prints
Year released: 2010
History: I am its second owner. First owner wore it 3 times, I wore it twice and gently hand-washed it (this print doesn't seem to run! :D)
RFS: I absolutely adore this print, but I would really prefer to own the long length of this same dress and am currently on the hunt for that!


Innocent World Birdcage JSK in BORDEAUX / LONG
IW_Birdcage_bordeaux_long-edit aIMG_0315 IMG_1068 IMG_1064IMG_1070 IMG_1072 IMG_1080 IMG_1081IMG_1084 zIMG_1074 zIMG_1075
$170 free shipping anywhere!
Bust: 85 - 98~
Waist: 62 - 82
Length: 108 cm
Material: textured polyester / shantung. The color of this dress is more of a BORDEAUX or WINE (purple tones) than a BURGUNDY (red/brown tones).
Features: Back shirring with a bordeaux ribbon, has adjustable straps, has a very detailed print and perfectly matching bordeauxlace at the skirt hem and front of bodice. Because this is the long version of the JSK, the skirt features more fabric with the print of the intricate filigree print (at the top of the skirt, below the bodice). The short version only has a few inches of this elaborate design, which is why I bought the long. This part of the print is my favorite part.
Year released: 2012
History: I am the first owner and bought this dress new directly from Innocent World in 2012!
RFS: I never wear this dress because I bought it expecting a brownish red. I don't think purple tones suit my skin tone.



Innocent World  Pietro Angel JSK in BORDEAUX / LONG PAYMENT PLAN IN PROGRESS!
01 IMG_1131 IMG_1137IMG_1148 IMG_1156 zIMG_1138 zIMG_1144
$170 free shipping anywhere!
Bust: 85 - 98
Waist: 62 - 82
Length: 108 cm
Material: The print part is made of very lightweight, textured cotton. The front bib is made of a smooth slightly thicker cotton. The print part is reddish-wine toned, and the bib is slightly more purple-wine toned.
Features: Back shirring with a bordeaux ribbon, adjustable straps, skirt made of tiers of angels print, front has a pleated bib made of smooth cotton. This is the LONG version of the dress.
Year released: 2012
History: I am the first owner of the dress and bought it directly from Innocent World! I did remove the two tiny bows pictured in the stock image but cannot find them, which is why I'm selling this dress at a discount.
RFS: I tend not to wear these colors, though I love angel prints.

Year released: 2007
History: I am its second owner. The first owner wore it a a couple times before selling it to me. This dress is in surprisingly good condition for its age. I'd rate it 4/5 (some feeling of wear, but maybe that's just me because I'm not used to owning older Moitie and the fabric is different).
RFS: I simply don't wear it often enough.



Juliette et Justine Cadrage robe (ONEPIECE)
Cadrage robe stock image cadrage-smaller_IMG_1151 aIMG_1087 aIMG_1088aIMG_1090 aIMG_1093
$460 + FREE SHIPPING anywhere!
Bust: 72-94 This dress is a size 1, but I am usually a size 2 and can fit it easily due to shirring
Waist: (can go very small) 65? - 74
Length: 98 cm
Material: very smooth velour
Year released: 2011
Features: Full shirring! The top part of this dress (bust/waist) is fully shirred making it hug the body nicely for an elegant silhouette; it does not bunch awkwardly like you'd think full shirring would. The fabric has a good weight to it so it drapes very nicely under a poofy petti. The details on the print are a lot clearer than most Juliette et Justine prints I have experienced, which is probably because the velour is very smooth and the individual strands do not stray from the direction of their natural nap even if you brush against it.
History & RFS: I bought this dress NWT from a girl who never ended up wearing it. I too never ended up wearing it, since I can't seem to find a coordinate for it that I'd be comfortable wearing out. It is a very fancy dress and would look fantastic in OTT gothic or vintage-inspired classic.

RFS: It's now too big for me

Features: Main part of the arm cover is made of black netting, and on either end of each arm cover there is black tulle under Moitie's signature holy cross lace. At the top part there is one row of gathered holy cross lace (white), and at the bottom part (which goes on the wrist) there are two layers of holy cross lace (white). These look beautiful under a jacket as wrist cuffs, or worn with an OP.
RFS: I prefer small wrist cuffs or gloves.

======================================================================

BABY Flying Love from Juliet black SK - SOLD

Price: $150 (free U.S. Shipping! :))
RFS: (same as above; nothing wrong with it; I just don't wear prints very often any more)
+ Excellent condition; the skirt is made out of a very nice polyester chiffon that flows well, not the usual cotton BABY uses, so it is also easy washable! The fabric is most similar to Fragrant Rose Memories in weight and feel.
+ Can fit up to a 28.5" waist
+ I am the 2nd owner of this skirt; original owner never wore it out and neither have I.

+ The pictures were taken with auto-flash. The black in the print is truly black, but I didn't want to edit the photos because they show the true colors of the flowers in the print well as-is.




AATP Sleeping Beauty ivory JSK - SOLD (Happy Birthday!)

Price: $310
RFS: This was a dream dress, but I've realized I really don't wear my print items as often as I should, so I'm selling almost all of them.
+ Excellent condition: no stains or damage at all!
+ The shirring on the back allows for up to a 101 cm max bust on this dress, and around 31 inch max waist (hellolace seems to say it can fit a 33 inch waist, but I'm not sure that's true)
+ I am the 2nd owner of this dress; the previous owner wore it out only twice.



Chantilly Phantom Merry Go Round OP - SOLD - Congratulations to katherine937 :)

original webpage: (it says "sold out") http://chantilly.shop-pro.jp/?pid=37335982
Max Bust and Waist: (shirred) 110 cm by the webshop measurements
Arm openings: (shirred) stretched and measured flat- 9" maximum (so maybe 17.5"-18" arm circumference maximum?)
Fabric: nylon/polyester lining. The fabric is SO comfortable and feels really soft against the skin. Also, the frills are made of this lightweight chiffon so they flow well (they're the best detail of this dress)
Four bows total: one large one, one small one (for the upper body of the dress), and two small ones for the hem. They're all brooches so you can detach them and put them wherever you'd like! See my pictures for ideas :)
RFS: So... funny story with this one.
I was checking the Atelier Pierrot store blogs in Japan, and when I saw the merry-go-round print on the dress in one of the updates I absolutely HAD to have it! So I contacted a SS and luckily she was going to the mall anyway, and had a chance to pick it up before it sold out, the only one in the Osaka store! It ended up costing me $440 after fees.
A few days after I paid the invoice, I went to Harajuku Hearts in San Francisco, and they told me Fumiko was going to send some of these OPs to the SF store and I could have picked it up there instead of paying around $60 in shipping/SS fees T_T
Anyway I realized this white dress definitely looks the best with the black print, plus it's now sold out on the website and in stores. It's such a showstopper piece, and fits me really well! But I truly think I'd rather have the artwork framed on my wall or something, rather than wear it (the story of my life with AATP prints). So I want to sell this dress to get one of Chantilly's non-print black or wine OPs, since they're so comfy and the quality is definitely better than most brand. I'm going to miss staring at the horses and roses in my closet, but I have to be realistic about it. I've had it for months and months, and still not worn it out. I'm really not much of a print person, so I hope I can make someone else's dream come true by selling it since it's pretty rare.
Price: Ideally $390. I'm completely open to long payment plans and offers. I know I'll be selling this dress at a loss anyway, but I'd like to make back as much as I can. Don't let this number scare you! There are a few people interested in this dress, and I just want to get it sold.
